The Lady of Shabbat


Hung in the golden galaxy
below the starry clusters bright
the moon heard a whisper say
no other care hath she
The Lady of “Shabbat”

Merrily a royal cheer
a skimming song, a carol holy 
 robed in snowy white 
 water lilies in starry trailing light
floated down to Camelot

Who is this? and what is here?
like to some of stars we see
 by garden wall and gallery
robed in willowy hills and fields
The lady of “Shabbat”

Moving through a mirror clear
in the dazzling crystal river
she has heard a whisper say
” She has a lovely face
God in his mercy lend her grace”
 

Under tower and balcony of Camelot

         the Lady of “Shabbat”
